I don’t plan on running for president anytime soon. However, if I did, and was elected, things would be a whole lot different around here. This post is not meant to get into anything political AT ALL, rather, it’s a way for me to blow off a little steam regarding a bunch of things people say WAY TOO MUCH that drive me crazy. As there are approximately eight gazillion things that bother me, I will share a partial list, say, every Thursday.
So, without further ado, here is my list of catch words, sayings, and phrases that will be OUTLAWED or simply GONE, should I ever become president. A word of caution, you most likely use one or many of these………
This is used in business, especially in larger organizations. When separate departments do not work well together, they say, “We’re all in our individual silos.” Stupid.
An arm and a leg
“I paid and arm and a leg for that camera.” I enjoy picture taking, but not at the cost of my limbs.
Dumber than a box of rocks
I know a LOT of dumb people. They’re still smarter than a box of rocks. And why is it a box of rocks? Why not a bag of rocks? Or a box of bagels?
“Why don’t you just chill?” No, thank you. It’s winter. I’m chilled enough. I especially hate it when people describe themselves as, chill, as in, “usually, I’m just chill.” Again, stupid.
This is sick
This is used to describe something……. Good? “Dude, look at that car! It’s sick!” Sounds like a lemon.
Smell a rat
When something seems off, people say they smell a rat. Well, let me tell you something. I had a girlfriend. She always smelled great. She cheated on me and lied about it. She still smelled great while doing so.
You win the Internet
When someone has a “witty” one-liner online, someone else rewards them with winning the Internet. Please.
